Business are always looking for online directories to submit their business, products, etc. This is a multi-million dollar industry and it continues to grow.

This courses teaches you how to build your own business directory from the ground up WITHOUT being a coding expert. All you do is follow along my step by step instruction to get it done. It's as simple as watching my screen and copying what I do.

Once your directory site is up, you have two options:

Option 1 - Make it free

People can submit their listings on your website for absolutely nothing.

Option 2 - Charge a fee

Charge a small...or large fee for people to submit their listing on your website.

Hiring a web designer to create a directory website like the one you're going to learn how to create will easily cost you $1,000's of dollars. You can use that money to spend on something else.

Features Includes:

Unlimited custom fields and forms

You will be able to create custom fields and form type for any type of listing you want to create.

Monetize your website

Make money by charging people a fee to submit their listing on your site.

Reports, ratings & reviews

Extensive configuration options

The ability to configure the options are endless. You can do some amazing configuration without having to write a bunch of codes.

Set up emails that will be sent when the entry has been submitted, published, unpublished or deleted.

And so much more
